Automating Inspection in Multi-Part Environments

One of the things we’ve learned about orthopaedic implant manufacturing is that parts are produced in runs, so an inspection system needs to be nimble enough to inspect more than one part type or size.

The LVR Inspection System’s robot is capable of changing its own grippers, so changing the type of part under inspection is as simple as a selection on the computer controlling the system. The robot will attach the gripper designed for that part, adjust its inspection parameters, and continue with its inspection.
